    Care Package For Twitch

    Post  Retherford on 06.03.12 0:23

    As some of you may know, our good friend Twitch recently deployed to Afghanistan and is in a pretty Godforsaken remote area. We just got his address today so, at least I am going to get a lot of stuff to send over for him and his guys. Im not asking anyone to go out and buy stuff, but if you have anything lying around like babywipes, hard candy, personal hygiene stuff, energy bars, whatever. Id like to get something together at the OP this weekend and to ship to him. So if your going to be at OP SOCO and you want to help out let me know. If not Ill be getting plenty of what he asked for, but extra is always good.

    If you need suggestions of what might be good stuff to send, Sgt. Anderson or any of the other combat vets are probably a good place to start.

    Thanks in advance for whoever decides to help out.

    If you put out, or PM me with where he is, it might help with contents. Do you know if he has access to a microwave?

    energy bars of all kinds are good. chocolate covered might still make it since it is still cold there. gum is good. small bottles of lotion and the travel size tooth paste. It really does depend if he is on a larger FOB or out at a COP, or worse. Also, there are washer/dryer sheets. These you put in the wash then put them in the dryer. They are great since it is an "all in one" and takes up less space. The small water flavor packets (Propel, etc) are also great. We would mix different packets to see what tasted good. The bottles are 1.5l over seas.

    If he has a microwave, Easy Mac and Quaker oatmeal (flavors) is great.

    Does he have computer access? I know he was on here earlier, but was that from his final stop or one of the FOB's that he was at?

    Need ot be careful when packing anything that might get crushed and leak out. IT SUCKS!!! Nothing like M&M's spilling out everywhere. A liquid would be.....bad. Really....bad.

    He said they need personal hygiene stuff the most. We didn't get to talk for very long at all, but heres what I got from him.

    Heres what he listed

    Baby Wipes
    Personal Hygiene (Small things of toothpaste, deodorant)
    Febreeze
    Gatorade Powder
    Candy (Starbursts, Jolly Ranchers, Sour Patch Kids,... similar stuff)
    "stuff to help people stay awake" - Not sure what he meant by that. Energy bars and shots (gel stuff)?


    He also said go off the USO packing list for care packages

    Other stuff that could be good. I dont know.

    Sunflower seeds
    Chewing Gum
    Nuts
    Razors/shaving cream? Toothbrushes? Foot powder?
    Cough drops? Hand Sanitizer?
    Bars of soap or small travel soaps and shampoos?

    Secure everything that might leak in Zip-Lock bags. He can then re-use the bags for other things. So it's like 2 presents.

    I know my dad liked slim Jims, Mio, Beef Jerky, and dried fruit. Candy and other sweets weren't too popular, but that's because they had tons of that in the packages they got, and they all went on diets. That, and the fact that the Airforce gets all the C.P.s! I'll try to get something together. How about some Chex Mix?

    Send him dip and cigarettes. He doesn't use tobacco but he'll probably be ablt to sell it for a fortune.

    Holy shit guys, I got my package today and DANG! SO much good stuff. I am literally set for months now off that package alone, more baby wipes than I know what to do with, enough hard candy to keep me awake on shift and missions, magazines galore (This is a family friendly forum, so I cant even begin to share my thoughts about Kate Upton in the SI swimsuit, nice touch cody). Enough powerade powder to last me a LOOOONG time. Hygiene stuff that will last me months as well. Seriosuly, those of you who contributed, I thank you so much. I really really appreciate the time and thought yall put into this, really made my day and boosted my morale to get this package.

    That being said Im doing well over here. Cant say much about what Im doing, Opsec and all. Looking forward to coming back home and doing some Airsoft and real shooting with Dagger, Airdog, IC, and the rest of yall.
